India Hicks Kings Treat

This Island home on Harbour Island is one of several owned by David Flint Woods and Fashion  Model  and designer, India Hicks.The home  just recently featured in Lonny Mag.It has an  exquisite blend of the couples love for their homeland the UK, and their love for the the British colonial style One that is chic, and effortless looking.


Driftwood Grey

I adore the color Grey.  To me ,it  is a soothing, and calming color. A great color for a bedroom.With that being said,.It has been 8 years since our Master bedroom has been painted, or should I say 1/2 painted. I faux finished one wall and didn't do the other's because it was a PINA, and 4 four kids, and life, and work and it just didn't get done.Now of course it is so not in style, and my taste changes constantly, so now it is on to some thing else.When we get through  the soiree we are having for our son and future DIL in a couple of weeks I am going to tackle the bedroom. This is the color Scheme and some gorgeous inspiring Grey images. Have a great Weekend! Hope it is a sunny one and NOT Grey!

Nantucket " Salt Box "

There is a simple  elegance to this refurbished eighteenth century's Nantucket salt box. There are so many nautical touches, from the art work to the blue and white touches  through out the house. An unfussy ambiance that is so common when living on the island, where the living is easy.

The Ultimate Beach House

I have been anxiously awaiting the photos of the Coastal Living Beach House to come out and they are finally up! Phoebe Howard brought her quintessential beach style to this beach house in Norfolk Virginia. There is eye candy galore, packed with great ideas  for all of us! I am drawn to the art and the beautiful  textiles. How about you , what is your favorite part of house?

Love the paddle mirror.

Fabrics and art is so cheerful!

The Albatross art is breath taking.


Sand dollar print is beautiful.

Have a relaxing Thursday!
